Information items

  1. Tidy Error -- Jimmy Parker - The Tidy error has been fixed. When using the FCKeditor pages will no longer have the Tidy error attached to the text. All articles that already had the error may still need cleaning manually.
  2. Update on image approval process -- Jimmy Parker - As of this morning the problem experienced for the approval process has been identified and resolved. Everyone is encouraged to try it by sending in an image for approval. Users in the meeting reported that the instructions for uploading a file for approval are confusing.
  3. Stability of Wiki -- Kip Enger - Jimmy said that he called Kip about the stability and was told that stability problems have not been reported. One user reported that a problem was experienced on Monday. The user said it appeared the site had gone offline or down at the time. Others reported that all formatting of a page has been lost several times in a row while working on a page. Mollie asked them to call her the next time it happens. Another stability problem was reported: When using the Wiki, either editing pages and/or browsing, clicking the browser back button often logs the user out of the Wiki. Don Stringham suggested to click on the refresh button in the browser. He also acknowledged this was a usability problem. The user who reported the problem in the meeting will use the feedback option and formally report the problem.
